CBDriThe Sweet Service Award goes to the City of Cape Town for the wonderful work it has done to enlarge and soften some of the curves on Camps Bay Drive, which was re-opened on Monday after almost eight months of construction, unfortunately running late by two months. The cost of the upgrade was R30 million.
